Westwood, McQueen, Henry Holland, ASOS - It's Grazia Daily's Jubilee Gift Guide!

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the Grazia Daily jubilee gift guide! You will, by now, have picked up this week's Grazia magazine and seen that we are somewhat obsessed with the forthcoming jubilee. And rightly so, we reckon. So let the celebrations continue! From ASOS' brill freebie download to Dame Vivienne Westwood's regal brooch, check out our selection of the best jubilee gifts. Queenie would be SO proud.

We've loved Lydia Leith since she created those brill royal wedding sickbags last year, and her gifts for the jubilee are no less hilariously inappropriate. Our favourites are her Queen shaped jubilee jelly mould (£10) and temporary tattoos (£3 for a set). Available at lydialeith.com

We really need (want) this Alexander McQueen 'God Save McQueen' scarf, cut from luxurious silk chiffon. Aside from the fact we love it, our only other justification for purchasing it is that it can be passed on to future generations. Right? £445, alexandermcqueen.com

ASOS, purveyors of all that is good, have come up wth a brill and totally free way to celebrate the jubilee - they've asked a selection of designers (Henry Holland, Preen, Julie Verhoeven and Danielle Scutt) to design a downloadable crown for you to don, tipsily, over the jubilee weekend. All you need is a printer, some card, scissors and selotape. *raids stationary cupboard* We love Preen's offering, above, for its print-clash possibilities. Dowload for free from ASOS.com

If, like us, you enjoyed Lily Cole's indiscreet homage to HMQ at last week's 'Celebration of the Arts' event, then you'll like this: Vivienne Westwood's jubilee brooch, made from papier mache, priced at £55 from viviennewestwood.com

Anya Hindmarch have embraced the jubilee spirit by giving their classic 'Maud' clutch a festive twist - available in six limited edition jubilee colours (our favourite is fuchsia, above) Maud is handmade in England, can be embossed on the outside and inside, and for the jubilee comes complete with a paper crown and 'Queen for a day' tips tucked inside. £450, anyahindmarch.com

Now, who said that jubilee gifts couldn't be sophisticated? Lovely Mulberry have opted to celebrate this jubi-lympic summer of fun by re-working some of their classic designs with a patriotic twist; a Union jJack embossed lock. This leather pouch, in a classic shade of oak, is our top pick. Available from June 31st, for £200 at mulberry.com

Unashamedly, we are totally obsessed with corgis at the moment; call it a hangover from last season's pooch prints if you like. This brooch, by Finest Imagery, is available for £15 at hannahzakari.com

Grazia Daily favourite, Henry Holland, has been getting into the jubilee spirit in a variety of ways - not only his crown for ASOS (above) but with this amazing tea towel - £25 at houseofholland.com - and equally brilliant House of Holland for Pretty Polly tights - £15 at prettypolly.com.

How fab are these napkins covered in gorgeous images of our Queenie? We LOVE them and you may have noticed they made a special appearance in Grazia's special Jubilee issue. You can pick up a pack for just £10 at www.constantandtrue.co.uk Genius!

And finally, something for the boys - Aubin & Wills, the London-based menswear brand, have designed a slogan sweatshirt to celebrate Queenie's 60th. Reading 'Luvvly Jubilee' (geddit?) it's available from the brilliant mrporter.com and comes in at £60.
